The Friday 56 (7)

The Friday 56 is a weekly bookish meme hosted over at Freda's Voice. The rules are easy  to follow. All you need to do is open the book you're reading to page 56 (or 56% for e-readers) and give us a little bit of what you're reading without spoiling anything major. You want to give people a little preview that makes them want to read what you're reading.

I'm still slowly recovering from bronchitis and pneumonia, so I haven't really read much in a few weeks, but I'm trying.

This week, I'm slowly making my way through The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey, and while I'm finding some parts interesting, I am feeling undecided about the opening section. I'm hoping it gets better. I saw great reviews before the release, but I'm also starting to see some negative reviews, so I'm a little concerned about this one.

"I understood. In the safe room, a billion upraised faces populating the infinite, and the eyes that sought mine, and the question in those eyes too horrible to put into words, Will I live?  It's all connected. The Others understood that, understood it better than most of us. No hope without faith, no love without trust, no trust without love. Remove one and the entire human house of cards collapses."

So... what have you been reading this week? Feel free to let me know in the comments, or leave a link to your Friday 56 post. I'd love to check them out and possibly add more books to my infinite TBR list.


  1. I sure hope you feel better soon, take care of yourself.
    Happy weekend!

    1. Thanks, Freda! I feel pretty okay now, except for the cough that just won't go away. But at least I went back to work. :)

  2. I like the cover, but the opening doesn't do much for me. I hope you feel better soon.

    1. It's getting better. This excerpt is from one of the better sections that I've read, but I can't get over how odd the first section was after the kick ass prologue.
